Will tampering. Family financial squabbles. Snobbery against the nouveaux riches from outside town. Hong Kong? No, Florence in 1298.

Young love triumphs over family prejudice in Giacomo Puccini’s one-act comic masterpiece Gianni Schicchi, one half of a semi-staged opera double bill. It is joined by the heart-breaking Suor Angelica in which an unfortunate pregnancy leads to a young woman being shut away by her family in a convent and her child taken away from her. Take this opportunity to see and hear opera stars of tomorrow in these two accessible works whose comedy and drama remain acutely relevant today.
